My Story

Jake was diagnosed with pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma at age 3. After a year of very challenging treatment, he is now a healthy 11 year old boy. We are so grateful to St. Baldrick's for their continued advocacy on behalf of kids with cancer. No child should die of this dreaded disease. And we have so far to go for the many children we met who were not as lucky as Jake. Please do what you can to support additional research for kids with cancer. Too many kids are suffering and dying. And much more work needs to be done to help survivors avoid devastating life-long side effects.

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
